Partner Messaging system status led goes off

Partner Messaging system status led goes off

Partner Messaging system status led goes off

Hello all,

Just had a system's Partner Messaging R1 card go bad.
Replaced it with a repaired/refurb R6 card.
Everything works fine, but this is the first time I just happened to notice the status light on the card shuts off when it is not in use.
Stood right by the KSU with a phone & when it shut off, did my 777 & still was able to get in & the light would go to the normal green.
Green light would stay on for awhile after I hang up, then shut off again.

Is this normal?

Been installing Partner systems for over 25 years & like I said first time I seen this & everything works fine.

It's like it just goes into a sleep mode, but still ready to answer when needed.

Did it come with a Flash drive in place of a standard hard drive? The Green LED is both drive activity and "talking", so maybe in idle mode it goes off?

RE: Partner Messaging system status led goes off

Thanks for the reply TouchTone,

I'm assuming the flash or hard drives are inside the card itself?
I never opened it up to tell, unless there's some other way of knowing?
It did come with the 4 port PC card, the the additional ports.

But that's exactly the way it seems, that it goes into an idle mode when not in use.

I guess that's what I want someone to just confirm, so I know I didn't just installed/sell a faulty card to the customer.
